“Impact Investing vs. ESG Investing: Do you know the difference?” is a panel discussion by practitioners in institutional investment, private equity, and philanthropic foundations. The purpose is to provide concrete examples of these three types of responsible investing by active practitioners in order to compare and contrast them.
